UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power some type of computer or a web server to prevent the loss of information when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the constant running of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it offers them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
